Brining Tutorial

Brining will be the end of dry chicken. I promise. I add this step ahead of any recipe, even a marinade. Try it and it will change your outlook on chicken forever.

Brining Tutorial



½ cup salt

½ cup sugar

6 cups water


Whisk everything together in a pot and bring to a boil.  Allow to cool, combine with chicken in a bowl, and put in the fridge.

2-3 hours for chicken pieces (but any amount of time here will do)

6-8 hours for a whole chicken

overnight for a big turkey (think thanksgiving)

hungry for more?
